Virus Insanity first impression

I order a few samples from Virus Insanity awhile back and this is what I have for you today. I ordered 6 samples that came in little clam shells along with some business cards. The TAT (turn around time) was 10 days which is usually a bit longer than I am used to, but once they shipped I got the goods in a timely fashion. Everything came wrapped together nicely and in a bubble mailer. Full size regular shadows are $5.00 a piece while the duo chrome shadows are $6.50 for full size jars. Duo chrome samples are $2.50 and the regular shadow samples are $2.00. The colors I got all swatched really well and seemed to be very smooth, I think they will be easy to work with. Overall, I think I will more than likely be ordering from V.I again in the future.

Everything wrapped up fresh out of the mailer

The shadows and business cards.

L-R Just Peachy, XTC, Lime Sorbet, Dance Dance, Jasper and Sticky Caramel (no flash)

Colors same as above, just with flash

*Swatches down over Concrete Minerals Electric eye primer

Color descriptions off of site:
Just Peachy: a peachy orange
XTC: a pinkish purple with tons of rainbow iridescent glitter and silver rainbow hologram glitter.
Lime Sorbet: a light shimmery cool toned green.
Dance Dance: a golden yellow with tons of rainbow iridescent glitter and silver rainbow hologram glitter.
Jasper: a golden, brownish yellow
Sticky Caramel: a deep golden brown

Of the bunch, I think Jasper, Just Peachy and Lime Sorbet are my favs though I liked them all. Have you tried Virus Insanity before? If so, what colors should I try next?

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and as always:

Hips, whips and strawberry lips,


  1. XTC is one of my favorite purples ever!
    Dance Dance looks so bright and pretty.

    1. Dance Dance is really, really pretty and the sparkles in it are so fun! Love it. ♥
